Reviews

A transnational literary tour-de-force. Readers will be carried along by its creepy charm - The Japan TimesA murder mystery and a family drama in one, this book is as beautiful as it is understated. The author presents us with a fascinatingly structured look into Japanese society and a depiction of mourning and grief that is universally recognizable. - San Francisco ChronicleMysterious and dark - Daily BeastElegantly [combines] a suspenseful mystery with an eloquent meditation on love and loss. - HuffPostThroughout this novel, numerous moments pleasantly evoke the surrealism of Murakami, the nightmarish descriptions of Abe, the alienated youth of Yoshimoto, and the ill-fated lovers of Kawabata. But Rainbirds, suffice it to say, is a different beast, a contemporary work of noir that draws readers into an eerie landscape that is hard to forget - Los Angeles Review of Books
